Two Ink Systems Fill Different Needs
Two Inuline ink-coating systems are said to improve profitability. One system provides high gloss values to 90% with a water-based varnish. Applications include products that demand very high gloss but not the properties of a UV varnish. The other system enables a UV varnish to be applied directly onto a conventional sheet-fed offset ink, inline, and without the use of a primer. Suited for use on highly absorbent substrates and jobs that require mechanical durability and chemical stability but not necessarily the gloss of UV varnish.
